    I can't even drive, but I never realised how exciting it is watching a project take shape.

    I'm given to understand that Mavis may be going to the Isle of Wight. That'll be nice for her! Doubtless Colin will be along soon with more news!
    Yawn I'm so tired with this big bag of coal on my head...

    hello,

    Yes Mavis, Bless her may well be going to be a home for a friend on the Isle of Wight. She's a lovely truck, but alas, she's just not quite right for me. And her height is starting to be a problem - I lost the chimney cowl last outing, on the road in and out of the estate where she lives - am scared that the chimney will go one day and rip the roof out!

    So enter BUS, she is OUR new challenge and I am sure that woodgirl and I will make her into somewhere special together. She has yet to be named, so for now she's called BUS, but I am sure that she will tell us her name in the near future.

    So, new beginnings, in more ways than one, and here's to the longer days, so we can build our new home!
